Collaborative Text Encoding
In honor of Frederick Douglass' 200th birthday, we will analyze and encode examples from the Colored Conventions project.
This is a monthly meet-up group interested in developing an understanding of transcription and encoding standards using the TEI XML-based schema. Those interested in using other schemas, such as the MEI, are also welcome to participate. Currently, we are uploading all of our learning docs and texts into the TAPAS Project, where you can immediately render and view your files. We encourage you to bring a text or document that you are interested in transcribing and encoding. Please bring a laptop that has a text editor (Oxygen XML Editor or Atom) installed.

If there are new participants, an overview of TEI basics will be provided.
Tech requirements: A computer with a text editor that recognizes and validates XML (such as Oxygen XML or Atom). Bring your own laptop, or use one of the desktops in the studio. If you are not a BC community member, please let us know in advance so we can set up a workstation for you.
